Easiest way to peel a butternut squash: - Lay on side - Cut into two halves, separating the "large ball" at the bottom from the "tube" at the top. - Cut the bottom from the large ball so you have two parallel flat surfaces. Stand the ball on one flat face. Cut slices of skin off, from top to bottom, following the contour of the ball as you make each cut. - Cut the top from the tube. Stand on one flat end. Cut slices of skin, from top to bottom. - Only after both pieces are peeled - cut each half in half (top to bottom) to expose seeds, which you scrape out and discard.

Not sure I'd roast butternut squash any other way after making this basic, non-fussy recipe. Winning recipes almost always begin with fresh ingredients and a little seasoning to enhance and complement. This is a winner. Easy to prepare, quick to roast, easy to serve and eat, pretty on the plate, and delicious. I simply added a little fresh chopped parsley to pretty it up.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to peel easily. Everything else was great.
